Level 5 (150/300/25)

During last month’s Deep Stacks Challenge series held at the Borgata, Peter Lew (New York, NY) was one of the most talked about player throughout the series, as he recorded three deep runs, which included back-to-back Final Tables in Events 2 and 3 of that series.
Those two Final Table runs netted Lew close to $8,000 in prize money, setting himself up for what he hopes to be a breakout Winter Poker Open series.
Lew will have a slightly bigger challenge ahead of him though, as opposed to the DSC, in which events topped out at near 300-400 players, this series and this opening event, looks to have field numbers in the thousands.
But, if Lew showed anything during last month’s series, it’s that he knows how to go deep and will look to parlay his DSC run good into a bag-able stack by the end of today’s Day 1A and make his first “major” score here at the Borgata.
